A Blast from the Past

torcon
I was startled looking at my website today when I saw the hit counter, which tells me the site has had more than 23 million hits since December of 2000.

Of course, I have to put that in perspective. It's really just the same forty-two people coming back again and again to see if DANCE is done yet, isn't it?

(I suspect the Not A Blog actually gets MORE visitors than my main site. A mention here -- of a forthcoming appearance, a book sale, a news item -- seems to generate a lot more response than anything on my Appearances page, my Signed Books page, or my News page).

No point to any of this, just... hey, 23 million hits, that's kinda cool...

No telling how many of you have actually been around since 2000, and how many found my site and/or the Not A Blog just last week. Some of you newcomers, though, might enjoy giving a listen to the series of podcasts I recorded back in 2005, to promote A FEAST FOR CROWS. (I assume you old timers have heard them all already). They're all at

I imagine I will be doing more of these when DANCE WITH DRAGONS comes out. I'll need to think up some more topics. (Maybe "Deadlines, and Why They Should Never Be Missed" would be a good one). Meanwhile, these may entertain and enlighten those of you who haven't heard 'em.

And try not to laugh TOO hard at the part where I say I hope to finish DANCE by the end of the year. I really meant it, honest.

I'd like to represent the the slightly less patient readers who would now accept ANYTHING having to do with the story line of Arya Stark! Anything at all. The last of her chapters was such a cliff hanger. Could you please, please perhaps update your "Fire and Ice Sample" section with a bit of her story.

I've read, then reread all your books. I have each one in both hardcover, and paperback, and have now finished them in audio format. Sure there are other good books to read. I have enjoyed Robin Hobb greatly, and other recommendations. However, I am now officially desperate, and ready to read Dances with Dragons.

Sincerely,

Eraticus
